Who knew? Even Bill Maher has standards…( and limits?)
RealClearPolitics has the clip of Bill Maher reading the actual texts of Weiner’s emails with the Las Vegas blackjack dealer, on his HBO show. Typical for Maher, and for his audience…about what one would expect from those who for whatever reason, find him funny, or even relevant. Having read the texts, and diaried about them on RS, I watched the clip. I was curious to | Read More »
MSM having a collective orgasm over Palin’s emails, but Weiner’s ACTUAL online orgasms, well, no big deal, nothing to see here, let’s just move on…
It is actually, too, too delicious. The MSM is devolving into a parody of itself, right before our eyes. And they really don’t even have a clue. They are blinded by their own political prejudice. This election cycle will finally be the one that completely ends any pretense that the MSM has to objectivity in news gathering. Up in Alaska, a whole forest has been | Read More »
Huma is far from being the innocent victim here……and, BTW, did Hillary know about this for some time?
OK. First, upp front, I feel very sorry for the lady now. She’s pregnant, and in what should be among the most joyous of times in her life, she has to deal with the mess her husband has made. But amazingly, everyone is ignoring obvious facts right in the open that belie any claim that she is somehow an innocent victim in all this. Here’s the money | Read More »
Whither the Dems? Why NO call for Weiner to resign?
The behavior of the Democrat leadership after Weiner’s presser yesterday afternoon is probably MORE bizarre that the congressman’s risky behavior…sending lewd pics of himself to women in cyberspace. If you think about it, it makes absolutely NO sense whatsoever. It is a LOSE/LOSE proposition for them. And thus, it’s reasonable to inquire if there is indeed something in the Dem/liberal DNA, psyche, ethos, whatever, that | Read More »
The Palin interview on Fox News Sunday: She “killed it,” “knocked it out of the ballpark”, and ( oh yeah) she’s running, f’sure..
Hopefully all Red Staters will get to see Sarah Palin’s interview today on FOX News Sunday. Interviewed for nearly 30 minutes, without interruption, by Chris Wallace, it was a bravura performance. She is most definitely ready, willing, and able to win the GOP nomination and defeat Obama in 2012. Let’s talk about the “style” first. Interviewed from Arizona, and not across from Wallace in a | Read More »
What happens if the Saudi regime collapses?
Watching the news reports this morning about the Yemeni president fleeing the country, as well as the escalating border violence in Israel, I suddenly realized that no one has been talking about largest of all unforseen possibilities: that the Saudi regime falls? Could it happend, what would be the effects, and what would the US do, if anything? The “Arab spring” has dominated the news | Read More »
The GOP messaging is getting much better, but is still lacking the overall theme
After the fiasco, when hundreds of billions in budget cuts turned out to be, well…..nearly nothing, I am pleased with the way the GOP, especially the House leadership, has adressed the key issues, and attempted to convey them to the American people. Consider the following: 1. We don’t have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem in Washington. 2. Paul Ryan’s deficit reduction proposal, including | Read More »
Weiner reminds us of the answer to the age-old question: “How do you tell when a politician is lying?”
Was just over at NationalReviewOnline. They’ve posted the ENTIRE 18+ minute interview that Weiner did yesterday with Wolf Blitzer. So I watched it. It’s remarkable…a tour de force of baldfaced lying. His nose already gives him a leg up on Pinocchio, but this is a truly bravura performance. We’ve all heard the adage repeated endlessly..the coverup is worse than the crime. Weiner lies and lies | Read More »
Sarah Palin’s “One Nation” tour: taking the MSM for a ride on a modern day “snipe” hunt
In the 50′s and early 60′s I spent nearly ten idyllic summers in NY ‘s Catskill Mts, first as a camper, then as a counselor. It was a wonderful experience for a kid from the hot, steamy Bronx: a whole new world of woods, lakes, streams. One of the joys was the weekly cookouts. Sitting around the fire, with hotdogs, hamburgers, Kool-aid, and s’mores. And I | Read More »
In case you missed it: Bob Beckel: GOP has a “good chance of taking the Senate in 2012.” (Hint: secret message revealed!)
I’m posting this only because I haven’t seen it anywheres. A few nights ago, on Hannity, Dem Strategist Bob Beckel, as a preface to his comments on the NY 26 special election, said that “The Republicans have a pretty good chance of taking the Senate” in 2012. It’s not quite the “shot heard ’round the world”…but it’s an interesting statement. Beckel’s a realist..it’s always easy | Read More »
